One of the concerns in the emergency preparedness community and public health response relates to the ability to rapidly recognize a bombing event (e.g., Boston, New York City, or your community) if it were to occur in a community. This can involve recognition of an unusual cluster of illnesses (dirty bomb) or a mass casualty from injured patients. Once recognized, then a determination must be made regarding whether the emergency preparedness and public health community were ready to respond to the bombing.Please answer the following questions:
Does Colorado Springs have mechanisms in place for early detection of a potential bombing and the infrastructure to mitigate loss of life during and after an event?
What are the reporting procedures?
Have they been practiced or drilled in the community?
